Summary

  • Picking up with the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, this classic program completes the story of a visionary who advanced the cause of freedom everywhere and changed the course of human events: Returning from France, Jefferson strives to preserve the new, fragile American government and helps create the Democratic-Republican Party to temper the policies of the Federalists. As third president of the United States, he doubles the size of the county with the Louisiana Purchase but faces controversy and scandal, finally retiring to his beloved Monticello. His last years are spent founding the University of Virginia and reestablishing his friendship with John Adams.
